New York premiere of the Director's Cut
In this holiday standard, Thornton plays an alcoholic, grab-assy safecracker who makes his living by posing as a mall Santa once a year and then making off with the accumulated Christmas-season loot. Zwigoff’s filthy-funny lowbrow laff riot evokes both Redd Foxx and The Little Rascals. With snot-nosed Thurman Merman, the least-lovable scamp of all-time, and the dream team of Tony Cox, Bernie Mac, and John Ritter.
Bad Santa screens as part of the series Terry Zwigoff
Due to a request from Terry Zwigoff, we will be showing his preferred director’s cut of the film on DCP instead of the theatrical version on 35mm.
